Little eyes lovingly stare up at you...
Eager to learn what you say and do.
Teach all the children how to listen and pray
Pray for His guidance in what you do each day.
Love one another; love your neighbor next door,
Not for a moment, but for every moment more.
Next time you like into your child’s eyes,
Tell them about the Creator of the skies.
Love Lord Jesus with your entire mind.
Show others how not to be left behind.
Show them how to place Jesus in their heart
Instill what you know, before you depart.
Smile, celebrate, laugh, and sing...
For in Christ, we have a new beginning!
Teach them to your children, talking about them
when you sit at home and when you walk along the road,
when you lie down and when you get up.
